    If they were going to go through all that trouble to paint the bass up they should have done some research and made a copy of Jack Bruce's psychadelic bass.

    How inaccurate...it would help if they start with the correct bass. Even if they don't do the Fender bass VI, at least they could reproduce the EB bass Bruce also used.

    I have an EB0, and a EB0F that I might paint up. Maybe do my own design... :-\

    I am a huge fan of the band and those were cool looking axes back in the day but to be honest, I would not be even slightly interested in one of those... that is unless it was actually one they played which would be waay cool. I actually really like the look of the regular SG bass Jack played. Very cool looking and he sure did know how to use it.

    "you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better-made or more accurate replica anywhere!"

    Really? Because that's clearly a repainted Epiphone.

    Which one of those is the real one?

    All of those are of a replica.

    I haven't found a pic of the original Jack Bruce EB-0 in anything other than heritage cherry. The pyschedelic painted one is an Ed Roman replica too.There are pics of the original Fool Fender VI. http://images.businessweek.com/ss/06/04/auction/source/15.htm

    My bad.

    I meant to say "which one is a replica of the real thing?", because they don't look like each other.

    Now I see that neither of them are relevant.
